Receiving a NIE and a NON-residence Certificate
NIE is a foreigner’s identification number that serves for the purpose of identification of foreign nationals in Spain. An exclusive personal identification number is assigned to all foreigners who are in one way or another associated with Spain with economic, professional and social ties. You will require this number to open a bank account, to purchase a real estate, to register with a tax authority, to register and set up a company, to receive a mortgage, to meet your tax obligations, and to carry out numerous other official transactions in the territory of the country.
NON-residence Certificate (Certificado de NO residente) – it is a statement acknowledging the status of a foreign national in Spain. You might need this certificate to open a bank account or to apply for a mortgage, and for the purpose of avoiding dual taxation.
Opening a Bank Account in Spain
On arrival to Spain, you will need to open a bank account with a local Spanish bank so that you can purchase a Spanish insurance policy, make utility bill payments, conduct real estate purchase transactions, pay your tuition fees, pay for any courses, sports clubs and many other services, given that cash payments in Europe are declining and non-cash transactions prevail. We can select a bank for you, prepare all required documents for the opening of a bank account and correct management of your bank account.
